, but it's not the way it works. romney has slowly gotten the word that the voter out there thought the two had things worked out, that romney and ryan were in this thing together. well, they're not. romney is dying. he can't stand being tied to ryan, and all that budget cutting baggage of his. for his part, ryan is feeling the taint of having a running mate who is unwilling to stand with him, unwilling to be his kind of politician. a conviction politician. so trouble in paradise. mitt's dying to be single again, so is ryan. we all know that politics makes strange bedfellows but the word is out this pair, romney and ryan, are sleeping in separate rooms. i'm joined by msnbc political analyst howard fineman and joy ann reid, managing editor of thegrio.com. more polling data that shows mitt romney trailing. let's check the hardball scoring board. according to a new fox news poll, president obama leads romney by five points among likely voters nationwide. 48% to 43%. catch that, the fox poll. highly significant there. let's go right now to howard on this question. it looks to me like th

first debate, wouldn't you? >> well, that's great advice for mitt romney. i actually thought that stephanie cutter was lowering expectations for the president. she likely agrees with your assessment, piers, in that she already ceded that mitt romney is a good debater, he certainly showed that in florida and during the primaries, he's a great debater. he put away the race there, really. and that underdogs usually get on the stage with the president of the united states, they feel that vibe, they're at parity and i think she basicsly broadcasting it's okay and we expect it if the underdog wins here. but here's what i think has to happen for mitt romney. he needs to bring this race back to a referendum on obama. it was a referendum on president obama for awhile as any re-election should be, then it was a choice. now it's actually a referendum on mitt romney. he needs to shift the referendum back into the incumbent and have the debate questioners really hold the president to account for some answers in libya, his silence on syria and certainly the economy. >> jennifer, it's going to b

weigh the president down. republicans thought all mitt romney would have to do is ride vast waves of discontent into the white house. somehow despite what appears to be on the surface a dispiriting economic recovery, obama is surging. in ohio the president is ahead by 10 points. the same poll found him up 9 points in florida. perhaps even more surprisingly, voters in both states now trust president obama more than mitt romney to turn the economy around. this really isn't looking like the election anyone expected. so what happened? the predominant theory seems to be that mitt romney is an inept candidate, his repeated gaffes have set him back against a weak incumbent. that may be true. the facts suggest something deeper and more important going on. the economic recovery may be a bit morrow bust than we all assumed. the number of jobs created from march 2011 to march 2012 was underestimated by 380,000. taking those new jobs into account he has overseen a net positive 125,000 jobs added to the economy even if you take into account the massive job losses from the financial crisis at the
